Good morning!! I hope your day began on a good note! I miraculously ran at 4am this morning and am still feeling those endorphins so I would say that my day is going pretty well so far! I am definitely already looking forward to the weekend to have some down time at home.
Today I am going to continue with my recap of our trip to Boston this past weekend so here we go!
Saturday morning we hung out for a bit before heading into the city for brunch.
We took the train (my husband was ecstatic!).
We had reservations at North Street Grille. The place is small, but the menu did not disappoint.
It was huge and had everything you could want!
But ofcourse, we started with mimosas. (When on vacation…)
We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and could not stop raving about them all day.
After brunch we took a little stroll to see some more sites around town.
We walked past the Paul Revere House, but decided not to go in.
We saw the Freedom Trail that goes all around Boston.
We saw Mike’s Pastry, a famous spot for cannolis in Boston, but decided we didn’t want to wait in line. We were all still stuffed from brunch too.
Next we stopped at Bell in Hand, America’s oldest tavern!
We decided to have a drink while we were there. I got the Berry Sangria and it was amazing!
Having a blast in Boston!
After our drinks, we walked to the Holocaust Memorial, which was very powerful. The horrific things these people went through makes me realize just how lucky we are today.
Next we went to Faneuil Hall Market Place to browse the food inside! I vividly remember going through this market on my last trip to Boston about 4 or 5 years ago (I spoke at a conference in Boston when I was in college).
The place is so big and filled with so many yummy treats!! Our friend Hailey bought some dark chocolate covered espresso beans and shared them with us! They were incredible!
While munching on the chocolate, we walked down to the water.
Boston is such a neat and unique city! We had plans to grab a drink on this rooftop bar, but it was packed so we opted for some seats down by the water.
It was the most perfect weather while we were there. We couldn’t stop talking about it!
Love these sweet friends!
After going home to relax for a bit and freshen up, we had plans to head to the Top of the Hub restaurant for dinner.
It is located 52 stories up with amazing views of the city!
Unfortunately when we sat down, my husband started not feeling well so we had to leave. We went home, ordered sushi, and watched murder shows on TV. We are so fun. At least we got to see the incredible view!
Our flight home was not until Sunday night so we went to a late brunch at a nearby restaurant called Abington Ale House. We had a nice table outside so we could enjoy the lovely weather.
We all enjoyed our food and the company. 🙂
We spent the rest of the day out by the pool playing card games. We had the most wonderful time in Boston thanks to our terrific hosts, Drew and Hailey! If you have never been to Boston, I highly recommend it!
- Do you order breakfast or lunch when you go to brunch?
- Have you ever tried chocolate covered espresso beans?
- Do you prefer a night in or a night out on the town?
